Lethbridg Carmichael in Sunday's action in the annual Labor Day Little League and top honors. Lakeside and Moose Jaw shared Not much of a ivelcoine for Eagle Keys Lions, Eskimos were just too generous By THE CANADIAN PRESS Generous opponents and rock-hard defences provided Calgary Stampeders and Sas- katchewan Roughriders with easy victories in the Western Football Conference Monday. The Slampeders, presented with 10 poinls from five safety touches in the first quarter, took a 23-7 triumph over Edmonton Eskimos before a capacity crowd of in Calgary. The opposition wasn't as gen- erous in Regina, but the Rough- riders intercepted seven passes on their way to a 35-14 win over British Columbia Lions. The results left Calgary in first place with a 0-1 won-lost record for 12 points, four more than Saskatchewan.

He lost a total of 131 yards on safeties, accounting for Edmon- ton's net offence of seven yards in the first half. Despite the safeties, Calgary had only a 14-7 lead until Bill Giveaway doesn't work, Alouettes lose By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Toronto Argonauts and Mont- real Alouettes will have to mend their errant ways if they hope to recover from Labor Day set- backs in the Eastern Football Conference. The Argos, far and away the class of Hie East on paper, turned the ball over eight limes en route to a 30-17 loss to Ham- ilton Tiger-Cats while the Als were equally out of touch in their 40-17 drubbing by Ottawa Rough Riders. As a result, Toronto with 10 poinls, maintains ils four-poin; league lead and Ottawa am Hamilton move into a second- place tic with the Als. Both the Als and Argos hope to gain a measure of revenge when Ihe teams play return en- Jagements next weekend, Ot- .awa going to Montreal Satur- day and Hamilton to Toronto Sunday. Toronto went into Hamilton solid favorites on the strength ol rookie quarterback Joe Theis- mann's performance to date and an anemic Ticat offence. ATTACK SPUTTERS Hamilton's atlack lived up to ure-game notices, but sputterec and sparked to put two touch- downs on the Scoreboard. Theis- mann didn't, and tire former Votre Dame ace contributed to he Argo loss by tossing four passes into enemy hands. It wasn't all the young quart- erback's doing, however, as the vaunted Hamilton defence forced three Toronto fumbles, two by usually-reliable Bill Sy- mons. The third, by Dave Cranmer running back the kickoff that followed Frank Quayle's go-a- head score for Hamilton, was snapped up by Ticat lineman Gd Chalupka on the 35 and he ran unmolested to score. Dave Fleming, on a 108-yard pass play from Joe Zugcr early in the game, was the only other sign of H a m i 11 o n's offence. Tommy Joe Coffey contributed 10 points on two field goals, a single and three converts while Zuger, who averaged 50.1 yards Football roundup WESTERN CONFERENCE W L T F A Pts CAPRI BOWL Join the Fun Join a League!

Ivan Mac- Milan added a convert and field goal willi Zenon Andrusy- sliyn lucking two singles. In addition to interceptions and fumbles, the Toronto of- fence lost a third-down gamble with inches to go. TRY EVERYTHING Hamilton tried everything in the books to muster a sustained drive, even reverting to the old sleeper play that almost paid for the alert- ness of Argo head coach Leo Caliill. Cahill spotted ex-Argo Bobby Taylor on his knees near the Hamilton bench when lie sud- denly remembered Taylor had tried the same trick in 19S8. Cahill called for a substitution and since the Canadian Football League rulebook says a sleeper play is illegal it either team sends in substitutes, Argos got caught with too many men on the field. But Caln'U's ruse suc- ceeded since the illegal substitu- tion ruled out the completed pass to Taylor deep in Argo ter- ritory. At Ottawa, Montreal coach Sam Etcheverry was so dis- heartened with tlie ineptness of his defending national champi- ons that he promised something new for the Montreal engage- ment. "This time I'm going to put glue on the said the usually soft-spoken coach after watching his players fumble away the ball six times. Three Ottawa interceptions, returned for a total of 101 yards, led to the Alouetle downfall. While Ihe Ottawa defence was sharp, it's offence was ham- strung behind quarterback Gary Wood for the first time this year and the former New York Giant was booed by Lansdowne Stad- ium fans as he left the field in favor of Rick Cassatta. Van Burkleo faked a punt deep in his own end zone, ran around left end, and scooted 89 yards for a touchdown. "No, I didn't call the Duncan said. "It was all Van Burkleo's decision Larry Robinson got the other Calgary points, booting a 32. yard field goal, a (tonvert and Iliree singles, one from 75 yards with the wind at his back. Larry Lawrence got the only Edmonton touchdown, on a 12- yard run in Ihe second quarter. Dunn added an 87-yard single. The ball changed hands 10 times with Calgary intercepting twice and recovering four fum- bles. Edmonton had two inter- ceptions and recovered two of Calgary's three fumbles. LANCASTER HOT Ir. Regina, before fans, it was a case of too much Don Lancasler and erratic passing by three B.C. Rusty Clark, Don Moorhead and Paid Brothers. Lancaster threw three touch- down passes, including a 13- yard strike to Nblan Bailey at of the first quarter to erase a 3-0 deficit, The Lions. have not won a game at Taylor Field since September, were never in contention after Bailey's touchdown. They trailed 14-4 after the first quarter, 28-7 al the half and 35-7 after three quarters. Lancasler also hit Bobby Thompson with a 14-yard touch- down pass and Alan Ford on a 12-yard toss. Thompson added another touchdown on a 22-yard run and Silas McKinnie scored six poinls on a 72-yard romp. John Stcele kicked all five converts. Jinr Evenson got the only B.C. touchdown, on a five-yard run. Ken Phillips kicked two field goals, one from 18 yards, a 49- yard single and a convert. Lancasler, who completed 11 of 19 passes for 208 yards, moved closer to two Canadian Football League records now held by Sam Etcheverry, coach of Montreal Aloueltes. The Rouphrider star has gained yards passing, 263 yards sliori of Etcheverry's car- eer tolal. Lancaster has com- pleted passes and is 34 be- hind the record of The league is idle until Salur- day when Edmonton visits Win- nipeg. Next Sunday, Calgary takes on Ihe Lions at Vancou- ver.
